a game, looks a little selfish, but that drives our economy. carl marx said it was gambling, and we should shut it down, worse than that, worse than that, but after years of experimenting with that people think, well, maybe we have to let people indulge in these feelings, and so they -- okay -- so let me move. i have another -- another 10-15 minutes. i wanted to talk about the future and about some of the ideas that i talk about. i'm going to start from tomorrow, and then move a little bit more and more into the wild future. what happens tomorrow is president obama has said that he be sign the jobs act. that name is a little bit misleading, maybe for political reasons. it's not about jobs. it's called jump start our business startups. that spells jobs. [laughter] what it is is it's controversial. i like it, though. notably, as an experiment, it may or may not work well. i'll tell you the most interesting part of the jobs act. the jobs act was created in response to requests from internet website providers who wanted to create a crowd funding website for entrepreneurs. if you're tryi

[laughter] some of the -- thank you. some of the other folks who gave me what they call a deck plate look at the operation included barney barnhill who, sadly, is no longer with us, but he was the 19-year-old bugler who sounded general quarters and sent enterprise to war on the morning of december 7, 1941. and when i talked to barney, he said, you know, i still have the bugle, and i wonder what i should do with it. well, i hope that it's gone to a suitable museum where it can be placed on display. another one of my excellent contacts was bill norberg back in north carolina. bill's a very impress e individual. -- impressive individual. he took to heart his advice from a succession of the ship's captains and we
boston globe." he is here to discuss his latest book, "buckley." please join me in welcoming carl bogus. [applause] >> thank you very much. good evening. pleasure to talk to you today about william f. buckley, and maybe most speakers don't begin by telling you their political affiliation, but i think that that's important and necessary. i have to be a liberal, and i know i'm speaking about a conservative icon, and the figure who is beloved by millions of people. so i think it's important that i confess my apostasy first to i happen to admire buckley tremendously, and many, many ways, but i also disagree with many of his ideas and that may come through. but i wanted to be up front with you about that. historians debate whether history is made by individuals or by structural forces. if george washington happened to have lived, or james madison, or abraham lincoln, would united states exist? if it did exist would be the same country we know to be? what other people have, thought, fill the shoes and done what they did, or would things be markedly different? for our purposes tonight, the que
